Armstrong (content management system)

Armstrong is an open source news publishing platform jointly developed by nonprofit online news organizations [2]

Armstrong was designed primarily to simplify the publishing process for other nonprofit news organizations by giving them the option of a CMS specifically created for news. Focuses of the system include media management, search engine optimization, integration with social media, and development of revenue streams.[3] Higinio Maycotte, CTO of The Texas Tribune, said that "literally hundreds of media companies around the globe have expressed interest in moving to Armstrong."[1]

The project to release Armstrong as an open source CMS was fueled by a $975,000 grant from the Knight Foundation, which is devoted to media innovation, to The Texas Tribune and The Bay Citizen. The grant was announced at SXSW Interactive in March 2011.[1]

Armstrong is written in Django, an open source framework for web applications that is written in the Python programming language.
